Went through my hives on the farm today. The swarm I caught was still in the nuc box all 5 frames of foundation drawn out and most had eggs in. Moved them into a hive. The other 2 hives are on their third super and have masses of brood this is one frame.

Really pleased with the way they are laying.

If you look really carefully Veg she has missed a cell.
I think the best thing you can do is carefully send her to me so i can run her in one of my hives for the rest of the summer and check her out for you properly !!

Most of the ones that look empty did in fact have larvae in bee-smillie

Veg,

That would be ten days for a swarm in a standard National nuc box? So not a particularly large swarm? Even a small medium?

No wonder it was full!! A few days time and they will all look like that frame above.

A description might help the new beeks with caught swarms.

Regards, RAB
